ITEN and Cara Stone, LLP Announce Partnership to Bring Digital Wayfinding Resources and Investor Education to Tech Entrepreneurs

ITEN and Cara Stone, LLP are excited to announce the continuation of their collaboration aimed at enhancing and broadening services for tech startups in the St. Louis region. This partnership supports the publishing and managing real-time updates of the digital version of our very popular St. Louis Tech Startup Ecosystem map on our website.

In addition to wayfinding services, we are able to offer enhanced investor education programming which is critically important to the success of startups,” said Mary Louise Helbig, ITEN Executive Director. “We look forward to Cara Stone joining us July 9, 2020 for our 2nd Thursday (virtually) at Venture Café where we will release the 2019 Impact Report and new Ecosystem map and Cara Stone will present on the state of venture capital in Missouri and the impact of COVID-19 on the venture and angel capital landscape.

"Cara Stone is excited to continue to participate in the St. Louis startup ecosystem. The entrepreneurs we've worked with from Missouri continue to prove that high-growth companies are thriving in ecosystems outside of the coasts," said Mark Graffagnini, Managing Partner of Cara Stone, LLP. "Access to information for entrepreneurs is crucial to a company's growth plan. ITEN and the St. Louis Tech Startup Ecosystem map are great tools for entrepreneurs to get practical advice on growing a business."

Support from organizations like Cara Stone enables ITEN to provide educational programs and services free-of-charge to tech entrepreneurs as they commercialize new innovation and launch new businesses. This has a positive and direct impact on the St. Louis region as measured by new product launches, job creation, revenue production and talent attraction and retention.
